Title: "Countin' Sheep"
Size: 12" x 9"
Hola! Muchas Gracias for stopping by my Terlingua Art Studio near Terlingua Ghost Town & Big Bend National Park (Texas) along the Old Mexico Border! For your consideration today I am offering this original painting:
A beautiful Native American Indian girl ~ countin' her sheep ~ and be sure to notice her tiny little lips as she counts the first "one...." ~ ~ ~ !
This is a Monument Valley setting ~ with the blue, blue skies and the coral, red and gold towering peaks and bluffs so well associated with this awesome area ~
Please also take note of the beautiful concho belt, turquoise ring, turquoise cuff bracelet, turquoise dangling earrings, and turquoise & silver squash blossom necklace this precious Navajo girl is wearing! Stunning jewelry!
This Native American Indian Folk Art is a very charming piece which will add a special aura and lots of colour to your home! Or business!
The colours in this piece are gorgeous shades of coral, red, gold, blue, purple and green.
ABOUT THIS PAINTING
This Native American Indian folk art painting is an ORIGINAL work of art, brightly painted with acrylics on a professionally stretched, gallery wrapped canvas. This premier canvas is tightly wrapped & tucked around a very well-made, quality wooden frame with no side staples ~ and all four sides have been painted so that it is ready for you to immediately display & enjoy just as quickly as you receive it (no additional framing is necessary) ~ and a hanger is already attached! Also this piece has been finished with two coats of a non-yellowing acrylic varnish to protect and enhance its beauty for many years to come. The back of this painting is signed by the artist, titled and dated (2009). The measurements are 12" x 9".
This unique painting is a wonderful treasure to collect for yourself ~ but it would also make a great gift!
ABOUT THE ARTIST
The artist ~ RoMy ~ that's me! I live on the border between Texas and Mexico ~ near the Big Bend National Park ~ a few miles from Terlingua Ghost Town ~ and I love the history and culture of this area ~ a raw, still quite primitive land ~ a desert land where "rainbows wait for rain." The last few photos in this description show my outdoor studio which faces Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande, the natural border between Old Mexico and Texas ~ and it is from this primitive setting ~ 80 miles from town ~ that I find most of my inspiration for painting. (in the photos Mexico is on the left side of the river and Texas is on the right)
I enjoyed the visit ~ Gracias! And, please, while you are here take a moment to
